Community Volunteer Action Grant 2015 Project Report: Victorian Government Threatened Species Grant to protect Diamond Firetails

 

Pinkerton Landcare and Environment Group and Western Water joined forces in 2011 to create a habitat corridor between Pinkerton Forest and Melton City Council-owned land at Bush’s Paddock, known as the Pinkerton Link.

This partnership between Pinkerton Landcare and Environment Group and Western Water to protect vulnerable species in Melton, in particular the beautiful Diamond Firetail. This work will also benefit other vulnerable species in the area, such as the Brown Treecreeper, Jacky Winter and Southern Whiteface. This project will also benefit other native birdlife that is fortunate not to be so endangered.
